Australian Opal Series: Rough-Scaled Python, Australia, 2015, 1oz


Out of stock


The seventh release in the Australian Opal Series features the Rough-Scaled Python, a dark brown reptile with pale brown pattern, a triangular head and a thin muscular body. Their keeled scales have ridges along the middle giving them a rough, sandpaper-like feel. This non-venomous python kills its prey by constriction.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

The coin’s reverse incorporates an inner panel design of a Rough-Scaled Python detailed in pure Australian opal. The outer panel of the coin depicts a collection of fern fronds. The design includes the inscription ROUGH SCALED PYTHON, the 2015 year-date, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 8,000 of the Australian Opal Series – Rough-Scaled Python 2015 1oz Silver Proof Coin.

The coin is presented in a prestigious display case with a light, which turns on as you open the lid, to represent the moon shining down on the nocturnal creature. The coin is accompanied by a stunning illustrated shipper and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
